There isn't a great deal involved in getting an online store up and running with Merch Window.
Complete these quick steps and you'll be selling online in no time.
In your dashboard, select 'Store' from the main menu on the left.
Find the 'Store name' field and give your shop a title.
The Store URL field is used to give your store a unique link for you to share with your customers. You can enter something you'd prefer or leave it blank for a URL to be generated from your store name.
Next to where it says ‘Logo’, select ‘Browse’ to upload the logo you wish to have featured on your custom store. When your edits are updated, the logo will load.
For best results, we recommend a .jpg file at around 512px square.
Next to where it says 'Banner image', select 'Browse' to upload the banner image you wish to have featured on your custom store. Your .jpg image should be between 1080px and 1920px wide.
The 'Description' field is where you let customers know what they've found. Tell them a little about you, your store, anything you feel will lead to them wanting to learn more.
You can add links to your current social media URLs for your followers to find you in other places within the Social media section.
If you're happy with everything, select 'Update store'.
Your store will now be viewable in the unique URL you have created. (i.e., www.merchwindow.com/your-store)
Probably the most important step in creating an online store, a payment gateway allows for secure payments for purchases by your customers and makes it possible for us to send your payments to you.
Merch Window uses one of the largest and most reputable payment gateways online to handle our payments, and we're proud to be an official Stripe Partner.
In the section titled 'Connect your stripe account' at the bottom of the page, hit 'Connect with Stripe' to start the process.
We can't wait to see what you've created and we know your customers are keen, too. Make sure you let them know about your brand new store!
